|Reviews for A Cranford Story|
| Katie Duggan's Niece 1/22/12 . chapter 1
I was very excited to discover this morning that a new Cranford story had appeared, and delighted to see it concerned Jack Marshland and Mary Smith. Wonderful!
I'm pleased too that the party hosted by Augusta and Caroline Tomkinson continues to be a source of inspiration. Thank you too for generously mentioning the lion's share of the characters we know and love - Jessie and Captain Brown, Miss Pole and Mrs. Forrester.
I have one small suggestion on sentence structure here: "The thought had crossed her mind of declining the generous offer and staying home with Miss Matty , but decided against it when she saw how much Miss Matty needed to be cheered up and if anybody could do that it was her friends." For clarity's sake, I would add either word "she" or the name "Mary" between "but" and "decided" (i.e., "...but Mary decided...").
